We have a number of products we still maintain using Visual Studio 2008. We have a new product being developed using VS2019, which we will probably move to VS2022 in the near future.

I do have a suggestion. Given the age of your code, I recommend using the New Project wizard in whatever version you decide to use to create the initial project(s) in the solution for your application. Import your current source one piece at a time, cleaning up issues as you go. As you move through the process this will go faster as you learn the patterns in the old code that need changed. This approach is a lot less painful than going through an upgrade process all at once (VC6 to VS2008 to VS2019 is one path I've tried).
